"Wish You Were Here" - Pink Floyd

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.

Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

"Love" - Prince

Stop telling me what you want me to hear
Stop telling me what you want me to fear
Stop trippin’ on something you overheard
Love is winning without a word

Stop giving me your wish list
Love is free from all this

Like a bird flyin’ over the hilltops
Love is like the sky, you know it never stops
From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks
Love is whatever, whatever you want it to be

Love is not a game, you can play on the floor
You gotta stop keepin’ score
If you wanna, if you want to play me like you did before
You better stop and walk out the door

You can skate around the issue if you like
But who’s gonna get you high in the middle of the night?

Like a bird flyin’ over the hilltops
Love is like the sky, you know it never stops
From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks
Love is whatever, whatever you want it to be

I see you standing with your back on the wall
You better, better get your hands up and clap if that’s all
And uh, if you don’t wanna get yours, then let me get mine
See, ain’t gonna be no drama ‘cause we have a good time

What’s the point of giving me ultimatums?
Smiling at my friends when U really hate ‘em
Trying to convince me that eye should too
What’s the point?

Stop worryin’ about what people say
When it ain’t gonna, ain’t gonna stop them anyway
Love can do anything if you try
Come on, spread your wings and let’s fly, fly so high

Flyin’ over the hilltops
Love is like the sky, you know it never stops
From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks
Love is whatever, whatever, whatever

Like a bird flyin’ over the hilltops
Love is like the sky, you know it never stops
From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks
Love is whatever, whatever you want it to be

Whatever you want it to be?
Whatever you want it to be?
Whatever you want it to be?
Alright
Let’s skate

Come on, I see you standing with your back on the wall
Better get your hands up and clap if that’s all
If you don’t wanna get yours, then let me get mine
See, ain’t gonna be no drama ‘cause we have a good time

Bounce
Aww, shake that thing, c’mon
Ahh, bounce it baby
Aww, shake that thing c’mon
Good God

"Love Don’t Live Here Anymore" - Ladyhawke

Love, love, love don’t live here anymore
You say that it’s a shame and show me the door
You say that you don’t need me anymore
And I said

Love, love, love don’t live here any
Love, love all you want is ending
Love, love all the nights we’re spending
Love, love, love don’t live here anymore

Lonely hearts are always wanting more
But only parts of mine were still unsure
You say that you don’t want me anymore
And I say

Love, love, love don’t live here any
Love, love all you want is ending
Love, love all the nights we’re spending
Love, love, love don’t live here anymore

Don’t know anymore, don’t know anymore
Don’t know anymore, don’t know anymore

Love, love, love is always so unsure
But bleeding hearts have always known no law
You say that you don’t need me anymore
And I said

Love, love all the nights we’re spending
Love, love, love don’t live here anymore

Don’t know anymore

You say your life was heading downhill
The light denied, that’s why you left
From me, what’s left to you
I waited for you still

You say your life was heading downhill
The light denied, that’s why you left
From me, what’s left to you
I waited for you still

"What If" - Coldplay

What if there was no lie
Nothing wrong, nothing right
What if there was no time
And no reason, or rhyme
What if you should decide
That you don’t want me there by your side
That you don’t want me there in your life
What if I got it wrong
And no poem or song
Could put right what I got wrong
Or make you feel I belong

What if you should decide
That you don’t want me there by your side
That you don’t want me there in your life

Ooh ooh-ooh, that’s right
Let’s take a breath, jump over the side
Ooh ooh-ooh, that’s right
How can you know it, if you don’t even try
Ooh ooh-ooh, that’s right

Every step that you take
Could be your biggest mistake
It could bend or it could break
That’s the risk that you take

What if you should decide
That you don’t want me there in your life
That you don’t want me there by your side

Ooh ooh-ooh, that’s right
Let’s take a breath, jump over the side
Ooh ooh-ooh, that’s right
How can you know when you don’t even try
Ooh ooh-ooh, that’s right

Oh - Ooh ooh-ooh, that’s right,
Let’s take a breath, jump over the side.
Ooh ooh-ooh, that’s right,
You know that darkness always turns into light.
Ooh-ooh, that’s right

"Sonny" - Hayley Westenra

Sonny lives on a farm, in a wide open space
Take off your shoes, stay out of the race
Lay down your head, on a soft river bed
Sonny always remembers the words Mamma says

Sonny don’t go away, I’m here all alone
Your Daddy’s a sailor, never comes home
Nights are so long, silence goes on
I’m feeling so tired and not all that strong

Sonny works on the land, though he’s barely a man
There’s not much to do but he does what he can
Sits by his window in his room by the stairs
Watching the waves drifting soft on the pier

Many years have rolled on, Sonny’s old and alone
His Daddy the sailor, never came home
Sometimes he wonders what his life might have been
But from the grave Mamma still haunts his dreams

"All About Eve" - Steve Vai

And though the sun goes down
The fever you adore is burning in your breast
Helpless in the fall from paradise into your bed
For here it is sown, in time we forget what is man

Don’t let your body cry
This game of love is war
And I’m already dead

You say- Hold me down and wash away
This hunger from my flesh
And make me reborn in sweet innocence
Come on and make me live

It’s voodoo that you possess
(Your heaven is danger)
Deny your dark side, I know
All about your secret life
Oh Eve

And so the moon is high
I see that love is blind
To the fire in your eyes

As our garden fiercely burns
We have no place to hide
Naked and cold running from the wind
Now wrapped in skin

It’s voodoo that you possess
(Your heaven is danger)
Deny your dark side, I know
All about your secret life

It’s voodoo that you possess
(Your heaven is danger)
Behind those lucid eyes
The shadow of the serpent lies
Oh Eve
All about Eve

And though the sun goes down
The mortals never know

"Nature Boy" - Kevin Max

There was a boy
A very STRANGE ENCHANTED boy.
They say he wandered very far, very far, 
Over land and sea.
A little SHY
And SAD of eye,
But very wise, VERY WISE was he…

Until one day,
ONE LUCKY day he passed my way,
And while we talked of many things
Fools and kings,
This he said to me:
"The greatest thing
YOU’LL ever learn
Is just to love
And be loved
In return.”

"Nobody Home" - Pink Floyd

I’ve got a little black book with my poems in 
I’ve got a bag with a toothbrush and a comb in 
When I’m a good dog they sometimes throw me a bone in 
I got elastic bands keeping my shoes on 
Got those swollen hand blues. 
Got thirteen channels of shit on the T.V. to choose from 
I’ve got electric light 
And I’ve got second sight 
I’ve got amazing powers of observation 
And that is how I know 
When I try to get through 
On the telephone to you 
There’ll be nobody home 
I’ve got the obligatory Hendrix perm 
And I’ve got the inevitable pinhole burns 
All down the front of my favourite satin shirt 
I’ve got nicotine stains on my fingers 
I’ve got a silver spoon on a chain 
I’ve got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains 
I’ve got wild staring eyes 
I’ve got a strong urge to fly 
But I’ve got nowhere to fly to 
Ooooh Babe when I pick up the phone 
There’s still nobody home 
I’ve got a pair of Gohills boots 
And I’ve got fading roots.

"Another Brick in the Wall" pt 1 & 2, & "Happiest Days of Our Lives"

"ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL PART 1"

Daddy’s flown across the ocean
Leaving just a memory
Snapshot in the family album
Daddy what else did you leave for me?
Daddy, what’d’ja leave behind for me?!?
All in all it was just a brick in the wall.
All in all it was all just bricks in the wall.

*spoken* “You! Yes, you! Stand still laddy!


"HAPPIEST DAYS OF OUR LIVES"

When we grew up and went to school 
There were certain teachers who would 
Hurt the children any way they could 
By pouring their derision 
Upon anything we did 
And exposing every weakness 
However carefully hidden by the kids 
But in the town it was well known 
When they got home at night, their fat and 
Psychopathic wives would thrash them 
Within inches of their lives

"ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL PART 2"

We don’t need no education 
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teacher leave them kids alone
Hey! Teacher! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall

We don’t need no education 
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teacher leave us kids alone
Hey! Teacher! Leave us kids alone!
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall

*Spoken* "Wrong, do it again!"
"If you don’t eat yer meat, you can’t have any pudding. 
How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat yer meat?”
"You! Yes, you behind the bike sheds, stand still laddy!"

"Last Night When We Were Young" - Frank Sinatra

Last night when we were young
Love was a star
A song unsung

Life was so new
So real so right
Ages ago last night

Today the world is old
You flew away and time grew cold
Where is that star
That seems so bright
Ages ago last night

To think that spring had depended
On merely this a look, a kiss

To think that something so splended
Could slip away in one little daybreak

So now let’s reminisce and recollect the sighs and the kisses
The arms that clung
When we were young last night
